Does anyone know where I could source a pair of front door window channel seals for my '81 242? They are a bit dried out and shrinking and let some wind noise in the car that drives me crazy. Volvo does not list them any longer and I need a set.<p>Thanks!

You mean these scrapers for the base of the window?<br>RSI: <A HREF="http://yhst-26451710505916.stores.yahoo.net/rsiwiscfor24.html" TARGET="_blank">http://yhst-26451710505916.sto....html</A><br>IPD: <A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/Volvo-200/Exterior/Window-Scraper-Molding/p-69-259-4090" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com/Volvo-20...-4090</A>/<p>Or the fuzzy felt on the rails of the window channel? You should be able to find a source for that at a restoration or hot-rod shop, its pretty generic.<p>I have a set of the RSI scrapers on my 242 and I love them. I have another set for the Bertone when I get around to removing the trim to paint it.

Nope, thanks! I got those and they made a huge difference between the dry cracked one pinching your arm or the new soft one being nice and comfy.<br>I actually need the window surround channel that the window slides up and down and seals in. I have tried to fit an aftermarket (by the foot) piece in there and it was a bit too thick.

I've just gone to a junk yard ( u pull and pay ) and took some out of a newer 240, and got more than I needed so I can cut to fit then superglue them together, there are plenty of decent condition pieces at these yards for the four door models, but there is rarely a two door, so if you find a two door you can get them, but if not, then you will have to improvise.
